Developmental biology attracts scientists from many different areas of biology, and the amphibian Xenopus holds a special place among the organisms studied as a model of vertebrate development. Until now, no recently published atlas existed to aid researchers and students coming to the Xenopus embryo for the first time. The present book satisfies this need. With its synthesizing approach and its generous provision of beautiful scanning, transmission, and light microscopy images, this unique volume will be a standard reference not only for developmental biologists but for all students of embryology, histology, and comparative anatomy.

The Color Atlas of "Xenopus laevis" Histology provides the first central source on the microscopic anatomy of cells, tissues, and major organs of the adult South African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. For many years, X. laevis has been a highly popular experimental animal model in many areas of research. The recent development of transgenic Xenopus technology offers the promise that this animal model will be utilized more than ever before. The purpose of this book is to provide the active researcher with a central source of high quality light microscopic color images of the tissues of X. laevis, to aid in the identification of the cells and tissues of interest.

Xenopus laevis is the key model for developmental, differential and embryological studies in vertebrates. Using molecular biological techniques it has become possible within the last few years to analyze developmental processes up to the level of genes. On obtaining results it is necessary to correlate them with morphological and histological stages. This excellent work documents and describes such developmental stages in finite detail. After an informative introduction to The Early Development of Xenopus laevis follows the highlight of the book, namely the 42 plates, each consisting of at least four high resolution micrographs. The reader is thus provided with a histological presentation of immaculate quality. Each plate is complemented by a schematic diagram describing the details shown on the plate, an additional scheme indicating the section and an explanatory short text, making this a potentially highly sought after work.

Growth Factors and Signal Transduction in Development

Growth Factors and Signal Transduction in Development Edited by Marit Nilsen-Hamilton, Professor of Biochemistry, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Iowa State University Animal development relies on the interaction of complex combinations of growth factors and their receptors. It has been discovered that many growth factors have the option of more than one receptor for signal transduction. Furthermore, these receptors can be expressed differently in different cell types and in the developing organism. This discovery points to the potential for fine regulation of the individual cellular response to growth factors. Growth Factors and Signal Transduction in Development thoroughly describes the interactions of several key growth factors, their receptors, and the subsequent signal transduction pathways they activate. This volume emphasizes the role of these signal pathways in directing developmental events. The editor has organized this book to contrast different signaling pathways using specific growth factors as paradigms: • FGF • IGF-1 • PDGF • IL-2 • EGF • TGFß Leading experts in the field have contributed to the unique mix of both molecular and biochemical perspectives as well as more integrative and organismal treatments of the well-studied amphibian, nematode, and insect developing systems. Significant aspects of mouse development are included in chapters that focus on particular growth factors. Most chapters contain comparative analyses of the role of growth factors, as well as their signal transduction mechanisms in these different developing systems. A notable feature of Growth Factors and Signal Transduction in Development is its glossary of genes and proteins referred to in this volume. It is designed to enhance an understanding of the relationship between genes and their protein products and enzymatic activities. The book’s integrative approach to the subject will prove especially useful to graduate students and researchers as well as research specialists in the areas of biochemistry, and molecular, cellular, and developmental biology.

The Atlas of Chick Development, Third Edition, a classic work covering all major event of chick development, is extensively updated with new and more detailed photographs, enlargements showing regions of special-interest and complexity, and new illustrations. The revised text and expanded illustrative material describe the intricate changes that take place during development, together with accounts of recent experimental and molecular research that has transformed our understanding of morphogenesis. These wide-ranging updates make this book an essential resource for developmental biologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, poultry scientists, biochemists, immunologists, and other life scientists who use the chick embryo as their research model. Individuals joining this burgeoning area, ignited by the increased insight into events surrounding organ and tissue differentiation, will find this a valuable tool to help grow a basic knowledge of morphogenesis. Remains the established standard—the only book providing a comprehensive description of chick development from fertilization to hatching Contains more than 750 photographs and illustrations, including 410 labelled histological sections and 85 new high-quality plates, showing the major anatomical events from the earliest stages to 13 days of incubation Includes more than 200 labelled and detailed scanning electron micrographs, showing various tissues in great detail Leads the reader to important reviews on aspects of this rapidly moving field, along with extensive and updated references
